Charging via a PC is not the quickest way to charge a GPS because many USB ports can not supply enough current, so the battery will take longer to charge. Using an AC adapter is a better way. Leaving the unit to charge over night should be fine. The way to tell if the GPS is fully charged is to look at the battery icon on the main screen of the GPS. It consists of 4 bars. 4 bars = fully charged. 3 bars = 75%, 2 bars = 50% and 1 bar = 25%.

My new nuvi 255w will not start displaying info

When using a usb from your computer it is only a trickle
charge to the garmin. Will take a day or two to fully charge. If you use a the cigarette lighter plug that came WITH the garmin, it will fully charge in 4 hours. Stick with garmin approved plugs and all will go smooth. I know, I made the same error.
